At the recent Streaming Media East conference, we sat down with Jamison Tilsner, a strategic accounts lead for YouTube marketing specialist Pixability, to learn how companies can succeed with branded web video productions. First off, Tilsner offered a definition of what branded entertainment is, and what it means for online video marketing.

"Branded entertainment, I think, is sort of a catch-all term that refers to any time a brand engages in the process of developing content," Tilsner said. "It could be a brand’s own YouTube channel; it could be brand’s integration with an existing TV show or TV channel. We’re focused on the types of content that brands can create to engage with other audiences on YouTube in an organic way. So, creating the content that the core audience on YouTube really wants to see and wants to engage with." Read the full article »

Picking the Right Song: Why Music Matters

A well-executed explainer video is a powerful thing. Using professional voiceover and eye-catching visuals set to music, your company has the power to showcase its products and services using this fun and exciting medium. For your explainer to be really effective, the visual and auditory elements within have to be congruent; they all have to work in harmony to deliver your message. That’s why choosing the right song is so important.

With music, we have the power to make emotional connections that aren’t possible with voiceover and video alone. A voiceover that simply and plainly explains the purpose of your product or service is a tool to appeal to a viewer’s mind- and that’s certainly an important tool. But shouldn’t we also try to make a play for the viewer’s heart?

Still don’t believe in the power of music? Why don’t we play a little game? First, watch the video we’ve posted below, then listen to three potential musical underscores. I’ll show you three songs, and together, we’ll try and decide which one best fits the video below. The correct choice will be a piece of music that sounds like the video looks: relaxed, friendly and sweet. It should also serve to enhance the voiceover, and support its message. When we listen to these tracks, let’s pay attention to any images that are conjured in our minds. The way we feel when we listen to these songs should be similar to the way we feel when we watch the video. Read the full article »

If your business thinks that online video marketing is the future…think again. Industries like accounting and law firms, that have traditionally driven their revenue with face-to-face relationships, are starting to use website video content marketing for building relationships towards new business opportunities.

We have noticed that more and more people, even though they may be referred, go to the Internet to look for information.” Proclaims Amedeo Luongo, Sr. Partner at CPA firm Mendonca Partners LLP in New Jersey. With hyper-connected consumers in a hyper-competitive marketplace, it is essential that accounting firms quickly build trust and make personal connections in order to win over referrals. One of THE best ways accounting firms can ensure a high referral conversion rate is by putting in place a sound professional website video production and online video marketing strategy.

While videos can’t replace face-to-face interactions, it can help to build trust even before those all-important first meetings with potential clients. Berdon LLP, a CPA firm in New York City, reason for corporate online video production was based on an ever increasing number of clients doing more research way before reaching out to them. “People assume that with a firm of our size, we have the brainpower. But [our clients] need the confidence of seeing the people that are actually doing the work. By using video we are establishing rapport even before they meet with us.” States Jim Termniello, marketing manager at Berdon LLP. Read the full article »
